Waiting for the results

Had a fishing meeting last Weds with just 8/10 people in attendance

One of the lads rang me yesterday to tell me he had just had a positive test result (had been in contact previously, with someone else who was positive) and could I let the rest of the group know

Turns out 2 others who were also at the meeting had a positive result yesterday

Myself and 2 others were tested yesterday morning and are now awaiting sentence, with all my work put on hold

Oh happy days, that's going to be me, Mrs swamp and 3 swamplettes all couped up together for 10/14 days (whichever set of rules we're following atm)

I have a garage full of logs and Strongbow

Just had the results.....positive

Bollocks !

Thinking back, I had mild symptoms last Thursday (mild aches, flu-like) but no high temp or loss of taste/smell

So I'm taking that as my start of 10 day self isolation

That means I can go fishing thus Sunday

Doesn't make sense though, because my symptoms started last Thursday, I have to self isolate from then

Which means I can be free on Sunday, but my Mrs and kids (who haven't had any symptoms at all) have to wait 14 days from now 

Which also means I have to do all the fucking shopping and go to work

Ah. That's a bugger. Fingers crossed you all only get the mild symptoms.

The self-isolation rules don't seem to make sense in every case, but I guess as long as you act in the spirit of limiting the spread then that's what the scientists are hoping for.

Best go crack a Strongbow then... shout if you need more and we'll arrange an air-drop 🤣👍

I find the concept of self isolation pretty scary, imagine being locked down with me? How would you like it?

Are kfc on just eat? If yes then it’d be ok. If not, then bear with sore head springs to mind
